Dubin Cleaners & Laundry is owned and operated by third-generation dry cleaners Andy and Sandy Dubin. Andy’s close friend Stuart Zack runs the front the of store and coordinates pickups and deliveries, and manager Doris Davis always leaves one meticulous eye locked on the hand-finishing of garments. Experienced stain fighters clean all types of clothing on-site, hand-processing each garment and using only pure solvents to keep threads looking crisp after a messy session of moat-digging in the front yard. Customers come and go on busy Saturdays as they drop off designer fashions, wedding gowns, table linens, and sheets for on-site flatwork, and enjoy complimentary coffee and donuts.
There's a secret hidden in the name of Bellis Therapeutic Spa: "Bellis" is actually an acronym that describes the staff's values. The team maintains a diverse menu of massages, peels and facials, and body scrubs and wraps. But every single treatment, without exception, is guided by the core priorities stashed in the Bellis name. "B" refers to a Belief in natural products and ingredients. Aestheticians scrub bodies with white tea and ginger, milk with honey and ginger, and herbed lavender salt. Holistic treatments such as ear candling celebrate natural methods, and oatmeal facial masks help nourish, hydrate, soothe, fuel, and disguise bank-robbing clients all at once. "E" stands for Empowering, the first "L" is for Listen, and the second "L" is for Learning. These three values work in tandem, as staffers pay close attention to clients' goals and concerns, then empower them with personalized skincare education clients can take home. "I" is for Integrity, meaning that the team respects guests' privacy and needs, while the last "S," standing for Services, refers to the leisurely pace at which clients are encouraged to enjoy each treatment.
